After the original Stunt-Master, George Smith, retired, he worked with a new Stunt-Master in San Francisco, and gained a portion of his profits. In order to pull of a series of "back from the death" show-stoppers, the new Stunt-Master used a series of doubles, who had been homeless people drugged to inhibit their sense of fear.

When Daredevil moved to San Francisco, Smith took the opportunity to plan a resurgence. Smith turned to Matt Murdock, using powerful and harmful drugs to prevent him from detecting he was lying, and pretended to be in a miserable condition with the desire to sue the new Stunt-Man over his name. The new Stunt-Master tried numerous times to get Daredevil to face him, but for the Stunt-Man to face Daredevil to be Smith.[1] Smith resorted to faking a suicide to do so. When Daredevil confronted Stunt-Master in the Golden Gate Bridge for Smith's death, the Stunt-Master revealed that Smith was actually alive, and Matt had to play along if he wanted to see him again. When both prepared to compete in stunts, Daredevil realised that during the preparation, Stunt-Master had been replaced by Smith himself, believing him to be a victim.[2]

Daredevil managed to get Smith out of the bike and get him to a hospital, while he chased down the new Stunt-Master, who admitted to have been working for another person. After subduing the new Stunt-Master by causing him to fall of his bike, Daredevil encountered Smith trying to escape from the hospital. Matt was told by Kirsten McDuffie that Smith was lying, and George was apprehended.[1]
